Babcary

"BABCARY, a parish in the hundred of Catsash, in the county of Somerset, 4 miles to the N.E. of Ilchester. Somerton is its post town. It is watered by the small river Cary, a feeder of the Parrot, and contains the hamlets of Farringdon and Steart. The stream gives name to this and several other villages. The living is a rectory* in the diocese of Bath and Wells, of the value of £450, in the patronage of the Rev. W. H. Twemlow, rector. The church is dedicated to the Holy Cross."
